Polartec Power Stretch® provides four-way stretch, making this top ideal for cold-weather cycling, ,running, skiing and other active sports.

Constructed with soft, breathable, moisture-wicking velour inner face for next-to-skin comfort

Smooth nylon knit outer face resists abrasion, sheds snow and light rain and dries quickly

Deep front zipper allows ventilation control; full-lenght draft-flap provides a wind block

Athletic fit and flat-seam construction offer a comfortable, sleek silhouette; side seams are rolled to front for flattering look

Drop-tail hemline is higher in front for mobility and a bit longer in back for extra coverage and protection

Anti-microbial finish resists odor-causing bacteria

Easy care: machine wash and dry on cool temperature setting

Voted 5/5

I have three of these and love them. One is two years old and still is in very good condition despite getting worn at least three times a month. Very comfortable. Power Stretch is one of my favorite fabrics. Warm for its weight and having the zip front makes venting easy.

I have not used them as a base layer so I don't know how well they wick but even on longer camping trips it has never gotten stinky and it dries quickly.
